Dooyoo Miles Explained - How The Dooyoo Reward System Works

Updated on September 30, 2011

In this article we take a look at how the Dooyoo Miles reward system works. Dooyoo is an online writing site and Dooyoo Miles are the currency of the site. So here we explain exactly what miles are, how you can earn Dooyoo miles and how you can cash your miles in. This guide will tell you everything you need to know on the subject of Dooyoo Miles.

Dooyoo is a company based in Europe. They give members the opportunity to write consumer reviews on products and services. As a reward for their writing Dooyoo will pay a small fee for each review. This is a very popular site used by thousands of people. If you are wondering how the site works then this guide will give you some of the information you require. So now let’s take a look at what Dooyoo Miles actually are and how they work.

What Are Dooyoo Miles?

So as we mentioned, Dooyoo Miles are the currency or reward system that the site uses. The simple formula is 10 miles equate to 1p. So 1000 miles is equivalent to £1. As you earn miles you can cash them in for rewards. It is unclear why the company use the mile system instead of simply giving you cash figures for how much you have earned. I suppose when they say they are giving 600 miles it sounds far better than saying 60p. The miles though are easy to understand when you get your head round the simple conversion.

You can see how many miles you have earned on your profile page. Miles are not credited straight away, they have a pending status for three days and then they move into the redeemable bracket. So you may have earned 10,000 miles but they may not necessarily all be redeemable. When you write a review and publish it, you have to wait three days until the miles can be redeemed. So how many miles can you actually earn writing on Dooyoo?

How To Earn Miles

So there are two ways of earning miles on the site. Writing reviews and then having your reviews rated. There was a time when any review would earn 500 miles or 50p, but that has all changed. Now it depends upon which category you write in. There are three categories to choose from, level 1, level 2 and level 3. Products in level 1 include things that are likely to earn the site more, things like electronics and household appliances. Level 2 includes things like sports wear and makeup. Level 3 has the most items and things like movies and books can often be found here. If you write a level 1 review you will earn 600 miles or 60p. A level 2 review will earn you 300 miles or 30p. Level 3 will earn you just 100 miles or 10p. So obviously it pays to write in the higher paying categories.

You can also earn a crown which is a bonus of 1500 miles or £1.50. To do this you must write a review of a very high standard. Other members can them nominate your review to be considered for a crown, then Dooyoo will review the nominees and award a certain amount of crowns each day. This is a nice little bonus and a good way of getting extra miles.

The second way of earning miles is to get your work rated by other members. This involves getting involved in the community and rating member reviews. If you rate a members work they are likely to rate you back. Again you get paid on three different levels when you get a rating. A level 1 review will earn you 20 miles or 2p per rating. Level 2 will be 15 miles or 1.5p and finally level 3 will earn 10 miles or 1p per rating. So again writing in level 1 as often as possible makes sense.

So now you know exactly how to earn Dooyoo miles, what can you do with them?

Cashing In Your Miles

So the main reason why people write on Dooyoo is to get something out of it. The idea is that you can cash your miles in for rewards. So when your total redeemable miles reach a certain limit, what can you trade them in for? Well if you don’t want to aim big you can cash 5,000 Dooyoo Miles or £5 worth of credit. If you do this the only option you have is donate the money to a charity of your choosing. When you reach 20,000 miles or £20 you can cash your miles in for Amazon vouchers.

If you have been writing lots of reviews and have worked hard enough, you can swap your miles for actual money. You need 50,000 miles before you can cash in £50. Then Dooyoo send you a cheque for that amount. If you want to wait a little longer you can keep letting your miles build up and then cash them when you have even more miles. Getting a cheque from Dooyoo is simple to do and it usually arrives in the post a few weeks after you have redeemed your miles.

One thing to be aware of is that Dooyoo miles do actually expire. If you keep miles in your account for a year then they will expire. You will be warned if this is going to happen but it does encourage people to continue writing on the site and not leave for extended periods. Even if you are only writing the odd review, you should find it is not too difficult to make it up to the 20,000 miles mark when you can cash in for Amazon vouchers.

The Dooyoo Miles reward system is fairly easy to understand and once you get your head round it you will find that it does make sense. The miles stack up quite quickly if you work hard and write some decent quality reviews. Although Dooyoo is never going to make anyone rich it can be a good way to earn a little extra pocket money.

      I don't use it as often as I used to but it's still a good site and I would say it is worth it.

      They have the option to devalue miles instead of cash in the future. Another reason why give miles instead of cash.

      Ask Delta Skymiles; they devalue their miles every few months, sometimes by as much as 50% :o
